Only five players attended but it was an opportunity for Andrea Andreoni to catch up on some league matches. He started against Martin Phee who proved a difficult opponent. Andreoni had most of the attack but could only win by a solitary goal.
Next up was league leader Tom Burns who spent most of the first half camped in the Andreoni shooting area. Incredibly, however, it was Andreoni who led 1-0 at half time, scoring with the second of his two shots. Delight turned to despair in the second half as Burns at last converted pressure into goals. It was, perhaps, a tired Andreoni who then faced Dave Gladman. Gladman scored early and Andreoni found himself chasing the game. Gladman, exploiting the space as his opponent came forward, added two more goals before Andreoni scored a consolation with the last kick of the ball.
In the Glasgow Cup, Colin Day ran out 3-1 winner against Dave Gladman. All the goals came in the second half. The first goal was always going to be crucial. Right at the start of the second period Gladman missed an open goal with a snatched shot but two minutes later Day was ahead after creating space on the left of the Gladman defence. It looked all over when Day added a second but Gladman got back into the game at 2-1. Hope was short-lived, however, with Day taking advantage of defensive gaps to score his third. Gladman must now defeat Dave Butler if he is to qualify.

Even though I lost, I consider this one of my best matches of the season so far.
it was a very disciplined performance and almost got the required result.
